AC Milan 1-4 Roma

Edin Dzeko
Dzeko joined Roma from Manchester City for £14m in August 2015

Former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko became the first Roma player to score 27 goals in a Serie A season since 1935 as they beat AC Milan.

Dzeko's first-time shot, followed by a header, helped them return to second.

Milan pulled one back through Mario Pasalic's header but Stephan El Shaarawy restored Roma's two-goal cushion against his former club.

Daniele De Rossi added the fourth from the penalty spot after Gabriel Paletta was sent off for fouling Mohamed Salah.

Former Liverpool defender Paletta's dismissal was his fourth in Serie A this season.

The Rossoneri, seven-time champions of Europe, stay sixth in the table and are without a win in four league games.

Leaders Juventus can seal a sixth successive Serie A title by winning away to Roma on Sunday, 14 May (19:45 BST).
